Meg Hitchcock was born in Springfield, Vermont. She received a BFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1996. Prior to that she studied painting at the Cecil-Graves Studio in Florence, Italy.
Her Mantras & Meditations series is inspired by spiritual and religious dogmas. Each piece of text art is what Hitchcock calls ‘a visual mantra of devotion’—a continuous line of text forms the words and run-on sentences without spaces or punctuation.
By weaving together the sacred writings of diverse traditions, she aims to weave a tapestry of inspired writings that points beyond words to a greater human need for connection with the sacred.
Hitchcock worked as a drawing instructor at Sonoma State University in California before relocating to New York City in 2006. Her work has been exhibited across the state.
